Easy Cheesy Quesadillas are the perfect meal for everyone - even the vegetarian veggie-lover and those of us who are a bit more health-conscious. Without any meat, this Mexican dish is both hearty and healthy at the same time.

What You'll Need

  • 3/4 cup refried beans
  • 4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 1/4 cups (5 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
  • 1/2 cup taco sauce, divided
  • Sour cream

What to Do

  1. Spread beans evenly over 2 tortillas. Sprinkle evenly with 3/4 cup cheese, and drizzle with 1/4 cup taco sauce. Top with remaining tortillas.

  2. Microwave 1 quesadilla, covered with a paper towel, on a microwave-safe plate at HIGH 1 to 1-1/2 minutes. Repeat procedure with remaining quesadilla. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges; serve with remaining taco sauce, remaining cheese, and the sour cream.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I am a server and the restaurant I work in serves a cheese quesidilla that is just cheese fried in the center of a tortilla and they are really good, but I am curious to try them this way. I think the refried beans sound good although I am not so sure about the taco sauce.

I just wonder why I have a pot belly!! Maybe what I eat--YA THINK--???

I think a little pre-cooked fajita meat from the frozen bin would go good in this. Some people say red meat is bad for you. NO! Red meat is good for you; green meat is bad for you.

Doesn't this come out more like a nuked mexican pizza? I put whatever ingredients I want on one side of a tortilla - fold tortilla in half over ingredients - spray a skillet (cast iron always preferred) and grill it till the cheese melts - then cut into wedges. I know microwaves are quicker - but I don't care for anything made in one. These come out with a nice crisp crust that can be cut into wedges and held in your hand - even li'l hands. Make a nice dipping sauce with sour cream mixed to taste with picante sauce - or make a quacamole and have a real meal! This one from the nuker doesn't even sound appealing.

Now, this does sound good, quick and easy. I think, that I would add some canned chopped green chiles and onions, preferably green onions. This would still keep the meal/snack vegetarian, but would add a bit of 'kick', without going over board. Everything that I have mentioned, goes well together. :O)

I meant to say, "Everything that I have mentioned, goes well with all of the above ingredients."
